In a project unrelated to this blog, I had the great fortune to meet and speak with members of the Hodgdon family. They own and operate the Hodgdon Powder Company which produces and sell many of the iconic brands of powder used by hand loaders for decades. The Company’s founder, Mr. Bruce E. Hodgdon, started his business after World War II by selling government surplus powder as a part time family oriented business. The company has grown into a premier producer of smokeless and black powder providing a wide variety of product to hand loaders. This company exudes excellence at every level. This includes products and customer service. They are very worthy of our patronage.
